Mojo Coffee Roasters—located in a sweet old building on Magazine Street here in the Garden District—has a generous interior and a lovely patio that make lingering easy. Coffee is roasted in-house, staff is knowledgeable, and there are tasty pastries to enjoy with your drink. Bonus: late hours.

You can find French Truck Coffee in coffee shops throughout New Orleans, but better yet, visit the source on Magazine Street, right near the World War II Museum.

Find yourself in the French Quarter in need of a caffeine fix? Head to the appropriately named Addiction Coffeehouse. It’s one of the places that serves French Truck coffee.

Pastries are from the local Gracious Bakery. Stop by for Friday Happy Hour, noon to 1:00 p.m. and enjoy a free espresso.
